MONK MISTERIOSO: A Journey into the Silence of Thelonious Monk

Written by Stefano Benni and directed by Filomena Campus, Monk Misterioso movingly explores Thelonius Monk's extraordinary seven-year creative and personal silence in response to McCarthyism at the end of his life.

Award-winning vocalist Cleveland Watkiss and pianist Pat Thomas will embody the great jazz pianist to mark the centenary of his birth in 2017, joined by narrator and vocalist Filomena Campus, MD Rowland Sutherland (Flute), Orphy Robinson (Vibes), and Dudley Phillips (Double Bass).

Come and celebrate the legendary creator of Misterioso with us for what promises to be a provocative jazz show.
